The Kane County Coroner’s Office Friday identified the 43-year-old Geneva woman found dead from a gunshot wound earlier this week.
According to a press release issued by the Coroner’s Office, the woman is Jodi Grzeda-Anderson.
An autopsy on Friday indicated that the preliminary cause of death was a single gunshot wound to the head. Toxicology test results are still outstanding.
Kane County Coroner Rob Russell said Grzeda-Anderson’s body was found in the back yard of her home.
A female relative living in the Chicago area called police at 8:02 p.m. on Wednesday to report the woman as possibly missing. Geneva and St. Charles police responded to conduct a well-being check at a home in the 700 block of McKinley Avenue.
Upon arrival, officers met with a male family member who was unable to answer officer questions or provide any substantiated information on the missing woman. Officers subsequently checked the home’s property and found the woman, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
The male family member was taken into custody as a person of interest. The Kane County Major Crimes Unit was called to the home to assist with the investigation. Geneva Police do not believe there is a general threat to the public.
Geneva Police request anyone with information about the incident to call the department’s Investigations Division at 630-232-4736.
